a failing ignition coil will quit when hot, and work again when it cools down. could be your problem.

-or maybe i'm misunderstanding you. the way you worded that makes no sense, and they did not make the PT in 1995.

no. what i'm talking about happens almost every time it heats up. if it's only once a month, i don't know. it's hard to diagnose something like you describe. unfortunately, it'll be easier to figure out once your problem gets worse.
